Tom Saxton has reported problems trying to use this cordset to charge a Tesla Roadster.
A group of Plug In America drivers were unable to get this cordset to charge a BMW Active-E. The LEDs indicated a “Pilot Charging Error”.
This cordset will also only provide charging once per plug-in sequence. Hence, it may not work well with the certain vehicle charge timers (eg. a Nissan LEAF end-timer). This issue may have been resolved in more recent firmwares.
KeiJidosha at the MyHondaHondaFitEV forum reports that this unit fails to charge a Honda Fit EV. This issue may be resolved in newer versions.
Dave Atherton has reported that this unit fails to charge a new Rav4EV and that a firmware update is in the works.
